Sick DayBeing sick is never fun. I never got sick very often, even as a child- but this one is particularly stubborn. "(Sniff, Hack!) Ugh." I can't help but make disgusting noises like this- it's not easy to be attractive when your entire body weight (in snot) happens to be dribbling out of your nose.

Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street

you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
